Shepherd’s Pie: A Midwinter Meal to Warm Your Heart

It’s cold. It’s gray. It’s winter. This is not a time for nouvelle cuisine. What you need is meat and potatoes served up fast, a meal that doubles as comfort food. This shepherd’s pie is just what you need to chase the chill away.

Easy, Healthy Soup Recipes

Pair this soup with a Cobra lager, the Indian beer made with rice in addition to the traditional ingredients. It’s less “gassy” than many lagers, with a 5% ABV. It will also go nicely with a Thai Singha, the slight hops bitterness a nice complement to the sweet fire of the curry and garlic.

“Grilled” Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich a la Elvis

Elvis was known to eat as many as a dozen of these sandwiches at a time. Amateurs should probably start with just one. You want to pace yourself.

No Stress Holiday Brunch

For a really festive feel to the meal, break out some bottles of champagne-style beer. These Bière de Champagne brews are highly carbonated, with delicate flavor and a potent alcohol punch. Try Kasteel Cru, a pale pour with notes of apple and citrus and a crisp champagne taste with a touch of sweetness. An even more complex version of a Bière Brut is Malheur Cuvee Royale which has even more fruitiness (apricots, apples, citrus) and a nice dry finish.

The Minimal but Memorable Holiday Party

At a big holiday bash you’ll want to have a supply of soft drinks and sparkling water to serve alongside the alcohol, but be sure not to stint on the beer. Bring out a selection of “winter-warmers” and seasonal brews to make a festive occasion a celebration of cheer. Samuel Smith’s Winter Welcome Ale, a malty, honey-amber colored brew, pairs as well with salty ham as it does with cake. Another excellent choice is the spicy, fruity, malty Jubelale from Deschutes Brewery in Oregon.

Do-It-Yourself Chanukah

With dessert, especially if it’s chocolate, try He’brew Jewbelation Bar Mitzvah (aka Jewbelation 13) from 13-year-old Schmaltz Brewing Company. This limited edition kosher quaff is a richly complex Imperial Stout (13 kinds of malt and 13 different kind) with an ABV of 13 %.

Cupcakes All Around

Toast your Christmas generosity with one of the lovely spicy brews of the season, like Samuel Smith’s Winter Welcome Ale (which would go nicely with one of those spice cupcakes) or the clove and orange-infused Schlafly Christmas Ale, which is the perfect accompaniment to gingerbread.
